bull

Postby buhbuh » Tue May 10, 2005 6:48 pm

Thinking of changing bulls.
Other than angus what bull to change to with Limousin cows? Thought about brangus.

Your answer will be as complete as the information you provide.

Time to tell us what size you are breeding to, age and what your goals are for your cow and calves, etc.

Otherwise the answer is - that'd work.

Cheers

Hereford would be a good calming influence on them if they tend to be nervous.

if you want top sellling feeder calves breed those limousins cows to a charlois bull. it will get you yellow calves and the yellow and the black are the top selling feeders in most areas and the charlois crosses will be bigger framed and outgrow the blacks unless the blacks are out of crossbred milky mothers---go with the charlois if you arent going to stay with the black, in my opinion

Could end up with some high strung cattle going with Charlais IMO. Like the Hereford idea. Maybe Simmental. Maybe Maine-Anjou.

I would probably go Hereford. Look for Langford bulls in you area. My ex-vets name is Langford and he has some pretty nice reg Herefords. I have one of his bulls here.

Just because you have one doesn't mean you have to act like one.

if you want black calves, angus or brangus would be fine. lots of breeds have black bulls now. many of those would make good crosses also. depends on what your cows look like & what traits you need

Dang avatars anyway. Well I will give it another hour or so to see if there are anymore guesses before revealing the true identity.
